Presidential Race

This is a Purple “battleground” state, one of six states (along with MI, WI, PA, IA and OH) that voted for Obama in 2012, but then voted for Trump in 2016. It is absolutely critical to our survival that Biden wins this state in 2020 to save American – and the planet – from four more years of Donald Trump.

Trump won this state in 2016 with just 1.2% more votes than Hillary Clinton, or just over 100,000 votes out of more than 9 million votes cast in Florida. Over 5 million Floridians did not vote in that election, including nearly 1 million young people, aged 18-25, almost 10 times the number that could have changed the outcome of that election in Florida.

If you live in Florida, your vote is critical to our survival. Voting for a third party or not voting at all is the same is giving your vote to Trump in this state.

Senate Races

There are no Senate seats up for election in Florida this year.

House Races

The best we can hope for in 2020 at the Presidential and Senate levels is to get rid of Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell so that we will at least survive the next four years. But in the medium term, we need to elect politicians who support the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, the Nuclear Ban Treaty and other real, sustainable solutions to the global threats facing us all.

Luckily, we already have over 100 such politicians in the House of Representatives. We need to make sure they get re-elected, and we need to elect more of them!

If you live in one of these US Congressional Districts, you have an incumbent Democrat who is already a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus to support for re-election!

District 9 – Soto

District 21 – Frankel

District 24 – Wilson

District 26 – Mucarsel-Powell
